We're passionate about development

Amigos is a charity which supports Ugandans to work their way out of poverty with dignity. Our approach to ending poverty is special. A powerful mix of education, vocational training, practical farming and emotional support is changing the future for thousands of Ugandan families.

Our vision is for a confident and thriving rural Uganda where no one goes to bed hungry. Our mission is to give families the hope and the means to live off their own land and set up small businesses to revolutionise their futures.

In the last 12 months over 20,000 lives have been impacted by Amigos
The School Where Everyone Went Thirsty
At Bethsaida Infant school in Kilyaburo village there were 150 small children who used to attend daily - for a lengthy 10 hours - during which time no one had a drop of water. The school administration was keenly aware of the fact that dehydration affects a child’s performance in class, as well as their mental growth, but they couldn’t do anything about it because they were already spending 20,000 shillings a day on water to make porridge at lunchtime for the few children who could afford it.
